Jimmy Olsen was a photographer for the Daily Planet. He met Clark Kent when he started working for the paper in his early 30s, and continued to work there even through the time the Daily Planet was temporarily taken over by Warfield Publications. Jimmy also had a relationship with Lois Lane's younger sister Lucy Lane and would visit her during her weekends away from the all-girls prep school that she attended. It was during one of those visits that he saw Supergirl in action, though he never revealed this news to the outside world when she departed after finding the Omegahedron.
